Wharf Rats Feature Film

wharf ratsThe PEI filmmaking team of Jason Arsenault, Robbie Carruthers and Dennis Trainor are on their way to producing a feature length film based on their tv-show concept ‘Wharf Rats’ which they developed for the CBC/CineCoup online competition ‘ComedyCoup’. Wharf Rats lead the ComedyCoup competition by way of audience views and votes online, but in the end their project did not win the grand prize of $500,000 to develop a TV pilot. But this Island-team won something perhaps even better; a chance to develop and shoot a feature film on PEI! The team is currently in talks with the production company CineCoup and writing the feature-script. If all goes according to plan, they could be filming this feature in the summer of 2015 right here on PEI! Read The Guardian article!
